LISA MIDDLETON is an Advanced Sports Dietician practising at Lifecare Ashburton, one of our valued sponsors. She provides nutrition assessment and advice to our Boroondara Express VNL players.

Lisa has also advised us about adding some health and nutrient-dense snacks to our kiosk options. These will complement our Saturday Markey providing fresh fruit, vegetables and bread.

Why?

Variety and choice

By expanding our canteen options, we are providing variety and new choices to meet a range of individual health needs and personal preferences.

Performance

Nutrition can have a significant impact on energy levels and performance, and the food players eat before and after games can make a difference.

Recovery

Post-netball nutrition can help speed up recovery and leave players feeling fresh for the next training session or game.  Foods such as fruit, nuts/seeds, yoghurt and milk-based drinks are all great recovery snacks.

Health and wellness

We care about your health!  We are not trying to go too over-the-top with healthy canteen choices, but introduce small changes to offer you tasty options that are also good for you, to keep you both happy and healthy!
